Share Article

Cunningham collects $483,000 for his fourth-place finish and brings yearly winnings to more than $1.6 million.

Full Tilt Poker’s Allen Cunningham continued his strong play in 2005, finishing fourth at last week’s Foxwoods World Poker Finals. Cunningham earned $483,000 for his performance, bringing his total 2005 winnings to more than $1.6 Million.

Foxwoods marks the twelfth time Cunningham has finished in the money in 2005, and the eighth time he has made it to the final table in a major tournament. Included in his 2005 performances, Cunningham scored victories at the Ultimate Poker Challenge’s $3,000 Buy-In No-Limit Hold ‘em tournament, and at the World Series of Poker’s $1,500 Buy-In No-Limit Hold ‘em event where he earned more than $725,000 and his third WSOP bracelet. That victory, combined with his four other money finishes at the 2005 World Series of Poker, made Cunningham the first player ever to win $1 Million prior to the start of the Main Event and helped him become the 2005 ESPN / Toyota Player of the Year.

“Allen’s unassuming style has always created a big gap between his skill and other peoples’ recognition of that skill,” said Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer. “2005 will be the year that gap disappears.”
